measure education, united states is not number one, math, science, engineering, any of these, we are not. we are not in the top ten in most. there's a whole perception. to me, it's similar to the united states in the late 1980s a that we're on the decline. we're a civilization whose days is past. i don't think that's the true case, but as you pointed out, perceptions matter a lot, and that's the perception. lou: is there a perception, as well, that governor romney can change it? >> well, i hope so. lou: that could be his political fortune and the fate of the nature. >> i wish he'd learn how to talk to women. if he could say, do you have any college age kids? guess what, half will not get a job. they will all have student loans they can't repay, but he's not talking to people in that way. lou: i'm not sure i can help him in all how to talk, but i can give a few tips on listening. thank you very much. >> thank you. lou: up next, one of the enduring images of the so-called occupy demonstrations. california students pepper sprayed at an apparently peaceful protest, other than the pepper spra
